Need more information - what is meant by...'problems turning on'?

Does this mean the ignition key turns and the starter motor works, but engine will not start?

Does this mean the starter does not work?

Please post a reply with additional details for further assistance.

We bought a new battery for the truck and yesterday it was working perfectly and today it's completely shut off, when I put the key in the ignition nothing will turn on

The hood light is dim and there's no reason it should be dim if there's a brand new battery.

Check the battery cables - both the positive and negative, especially the ground connection opposite end of the cable at the chassis ground point.

The ground connection should be solid; no corrosion or loosness.
